Derek Jones answered:
Realtor commissions are negotiable. My advice would be to interview a couple and not only look at the commission but look at the services offered. What are you getting for that commission? Are you getting an agent that just pulls out their cell phone and snaps a couple blurry pictures of your home puts it in the mls and waits? Or are you getting an agent who hires a professional photographer, and actively markets your home?

Feel free to give me a call if you'd like the later.

A homeowner can't be forced to sell, except by operation of law, such as a court order or foreclosure, etc. Even though you can't be forced to sell, you may still be liable for damages, specific performance, or broker commissions. We don't know what's in your specific agreements with your broker and your buyer, and even if we did, we would recommend that you seek legal advice from an attorney.

I am a real estate broker qualified to advise you on California real estate matters, not the law. If you desire legal advice, consult with an attorney.

Best of luck!

Derek Jones answered:
To have agents call you wanting to list your home submit it through this link:

If you really want to sell your home and get the most for your home you'd at the very least hire a discount broker to put it in the mls so buyers and their agents can see it. When agents search for homes to meet their buyers needs they search the mls and not trulia/zillow. And the agents I know specifically tell their clients to not search trulia/zillow as they aren't connected to our mls and are either outdated or missing listings. ... more

Nice home!

Our MLS doesn't syndicate to Trulia/Zillow. You are going to want to have a conversation with your agent about getting it posted as she would have to post it manually or use a 3rd party service to get it posted here. If she doesn't know how she can ask her broker or office admin about posting to Trulia. You'll also want to ask her about Zillow as it's not showing up there either. ... more

You may want to be careful as depending on how you do it Metrolist may consider it marketing prior to being active. May want to invite agent over for bpo's.

Have your agent place it on Trulia. It is not automatic unless he agent signs up for an auto feed.

I think you would put it on Zillow as a FSBO.

It appears that you are not an agent. You will need to ask your agent to refresh or make changes to the listing as this is something you cannot do.

You got a very detailed answer / estimate below, and that is exactly what it is an estimate, various title companies charge different fees, they are close but certainly never exactly the same and they do vary by city and county as well....Give it a high end estimate and be surprised if and when it ends up to be
less.... when making the offer, you could certainly negotiate with the other party who pays what or share in those expenses, you can try...

Good Luck to you

Jacquie Yekmalian answered:
Excellent feedback and no offers tells me its price. Any home in any condition will sell if price is close to what the market is willing to pay. If you have had a market value done by a Realtor or asked an appraiser to come and appraise your home you should list around or slightly under that range.

Hope that helps.
Good Luck

Your listing agent should be able to correct the information for you on Trulia. Trulia does not at this time take listings that are FSBO (for sale by owner).

Hi Stephen,

Inspections up front are often a good idea, since this can lead to higher offers in a multiple offer environment if the buyers are aware of any issues, and are more comfortable about bidding higher.

Kind regards,
